Moonflowers   Moonflowers grow reserved for the full moon. They begin to unfold with moonlight kisses, With a special delight in the month of June.   Some as large as a child's tea set dishes, Most the size of beautiful Fairy horns. Those lucky to see are granted three wishes.   Growing in serenity without thorns, The lips turn crimson after their moonlit kiss. They gleam when the early morning dew forms.   Touch one to your cheek, feel it's gentle caress As a sign of acceptance and elation. It's an experience only a fool would miss.   Seeds sown in the shadow of salvation, It's brief life finished with satisfaction.    
Author's Notes:
I took the word bank my son, Joey, gave me and was moved to write another one from the same words as "Moonlit Kisses".
The words are in bold:  reserved, moonlight, kisses, delight, beautiful, serenity, crimson, gleam, acceptance, elation, shadow, and finished.  It has a totally different feel from the same words.

Seeds sown in the shadow of salvation,

It's brief life finished with satisfaction.


That's a great finish, kid..Nice word bank exersize. Must be something magical about moonflowers, like the flowers that only bloon in cold, snowy weather. Every one of nature's rules has exceptions...len

Aren't word banks fun? You can take a list of words and write in nearly EVERY category with them...It's pretty awesome, by the way...Moonflowers sound beautiful!

Hugs to you!
